321 Gang – Newsletter – February – 2024

Welcome to our February Newsletter!

This past month, 321 Gang has been actively engaged with customers and involved in travel commitments. We had the privilege of attending the IBM TechXchange: Orlando Engineering Symposium and Workshop, where our own Doug Stewart took on the role of a presenter. During the event, we gained valuable insights into the ELM Roadmap and heard from multiple experts in the field.

In a collaborative effort, we co-hosted a webinar titled ‘Embedded DevOps and CI/CD using GitLab’ alongside the Beningo Embedded Group. This signifies our commitment to sharing knowledge and staying at the forefront of industry advancements. If you’re interested in watching the webinar, please reach out to us at gitlab@321gang.com for more information.
